Can anyone tell me if this event is still on. I have tried to contact Trent but have not heard anything.

I believe it's on as it is listed on the NSWCA Calendar to be taking place on November 5 and 6. The venue will probably be the Hurley Park Community Hall on Saturday and the Campbelltown Catholic Club on Sunday although I don't know for sure.

I will be playing.

Thanks Max

But I heard a rumour at Ryde Eastwood that it had been cancelled because Trent had been unable to secure a venue.

Hi All
The problem is that I have been so busy with university and doing professional experience at a school that I have not had the chance to organise this year's tournament as of yet.

I am going to endeavor to get the tournament up and running for early december.

(going to ask the school if I can borrow their hall.... The School i'm currently at is about a 10min walk from Ingleburn station.)

Hey Trent if possible can you make the tournament the first or third weekend in December? Would like to play it but I am playing the Young Masters from 5-12 December

Thanks for the notification Trent.

The Australasian Masters is taking place on the 10th to the 18th of December, so December 1-2 would be ideal from my point of view.

is it FIDE rated? Thinking of playing and Dec 1-2 would suit me too.

First weekend in December would clash with the ASTC, which I believe is also in Sydney.

The ASTC is not an issue. Nobody plays in both ASTC and weekeders. If Trent wants to get the numbers, the first week of December is the best choice.

When I played in 2009 and 2010 the tournament was only ACF rated, with a time control of 60+10 Fischer.

Edit: I should have said Dec 3-4 above! December 1 and 2 is Thursday and Friday.

It is with great regret that I must announce that the Fisher's Ghost Open will not be running for 2011 :(

The venues that i had on offer were booked with other functions.

I am going to endeavor to get the 2012 tournament organised early even knowing that I may not be there to run it if everything goes well.
